  1. My wife and I are married almost 45 years. It is a challenge but we remained committed to each other . Just simple kindness to one another goes a long, long way. Christ set the perfect example and although we fall far short of that we still love our time together

  2. Thanks for reading, Steve, and for sharing your thoughts.
